N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals
We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue thatExpand

Fractional M2-branes
We consider two generalizations of the = 6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge group U(N) × U(N). The first generalization is to = 6 superconformal U(M) × U(N) theories, and theExpand

Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity
We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal fieldExpand

Aspects of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions
Abstract We consider general aspects of N = 2 gauge theories in three dimensions, including their multiplet structure, anomalies and non-renormalization theorems. For U (1) gauge theories, we discussExpand

3d dualities from 4d dualities
A bstractMany examples of low-energy dualities have been found in supersymmetric gauge theories with four supercharges, both in four and in three space-time dimensions. In these dualities, twoExpand

IR duality in d = 3 N = 2 supersymmetric USp (2Nc) and U(Nc) gauge theories
Abstract We suggest IR-dual descriptions for d = 3 N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories with gauge groups USp(2N2) and U(Nc) and matter in the fundamental representation. We relate this duality to theExpand

Reading between the lines of four-dimensional gauge theories
A bstractStarting with a choice of a gauge group in four dimensions, there is often freedom in the choice of magnetic and dyonic line operators. Different consistent choices of these operatorsExpand

A holographic model of deconfinement and chiral symmetry restoration
Abstract We analyze the finite temperature behavior of the Sakai–Sugimoto model, which is a holographic dual of a theory which spontaneously breaks a U(Nf)L × U(Nf)R chiral flavor symmetry at zeroExpand
